    This has nothing to do with path finding being broken. It makes sense what happens here. Lose unobstructed movement -> be forced to walk around tree. Way leads through the web so you gain unobstructed movement again -> can now walk through trees again. Repeat.

    This is not Reborn related.

      So you want to say that broodmother walking back and forth at same spot instead of walking to rune when there are no obstacles in her way is working as intended?

        No, I'm saying that pathing is not broken and this here is a logical result. It's technically not a bug. But that doesn't mean it's working well. In Broodmother's case, it's a bit clunky.

        You have this aura-like effect which gives you unobstructed pathing. Upon getting the buff, your unit logically choses the direct possible path, which is through trees. Upon losing it, it can't take that path anymore and is forced to move back. This leads to it being in range of the aura again, so now it can take the tree path again, but then it moves out of range again, and repeat.

        It works the same for every source of unobstructed movement. If Batrider loses Firefly while between trees, he is forced to move back again. The difference is, he doesn't get the unobstructed movement back when moving back. Only brood can get into this loop.
